This week I'm feeling particularly appreciative of my life and the pets that are such a huge part of my life, so I'm resurrecting this post from 2011.
Lucy is a husky/retriever/shepherd cross who won my heart 12 years ago. She is my best bud, constant companion and has the best traits of all three breeds. I found her as a 6 week old puppy at the SPCA. Actually I found her brother first but I was set on having a female so the girls at the SPCA found his littermate for me. It was the best decision I ever made.
She loves water, snow, sun, rain, people, animals, running, swimming, scuba diving (or her version of it), food and life in general.
Next in line is Maggie:
Maggie was an abused animal when I got her and it took her a long, long time to trust again. She is a purebred Maine Coon Cat and now weighs 18 lbs. She tends to look at the rest of us like we are all nuts and she is the only one who understands what life is all about. She LOVES food and hanging out. She is extremely vocal about everything - especially the things she isn't impressed with - and when she purrs, it sounds like a squeaky freight train... What she doesn't love is:
Eloise (her own kitten)
Eloise is a hunter extraodinaire. There is nothing she can't catch &/or kill (and eat - ewwwww). She is a very cuddly, sweet and loving little cat. She especially loves Lucy although I suspect the feeling is not mutual.
I love them all to pieces, they are my companions and my buddies. They enrich my life and I am so blessed to have had the chance to love them all.
Update: I lost my sweet Lou in January 2013 and then Maggie went to join her in October. Miss them both more than I can say.
